Abandoned football match after the hearse entered the pitch


A preseason game between two non-league teams had to be called off after men in ski masks drove a hearse onto the field and scattered leaflets on the ground.

The friendly between Gateshead and Dunston was called off at half time on Friday, after the hearse was driven onto the pitch at the UTS Stadium in Dunston, Tyne and Wear, along with a Subaru, shortly before 8:20pm.

Both vehicles went around in circles as leaflets were thrown from one of the cars, at the club on Wellington Road.

The men wearing ski masks abandoned the hearse and joined the second car, which was driven off the pitch and out of the stadium.

The hearse was left on the court.
